Tax thought

It is a scary realization when you are doing your taxes and you realize that you have somehow spewed off enough in medical items that it's something that can be itemized on your taxes.


On the bright side, at least they'll be done quickly this year. Last year, I prepared our taxes through Liberty Tax Service, since I was working there for the season.

This year, I'm back to using TurboTax, and unlike the new Secretary of the Treasury, I actually know how to use the program and stay up to date on tax rules.

I seriously wonder, though - how is it that schmoes like us are able to use the program, but genius public officials like Tim Geithner and Tom Daschle can't, or won't?

Oh, wait, there's ANOTHER one?
